Everyone is ready for Friday!

Well,  the general consensus is...YAY Friday!  Don't you wish you enjoyed the weekdays just a little more??

I'm grumpy today because I have lost out on $25 worth of paper pads that I ordered from a company online.  They basically told me I was out of luck, sucks to be you.  It kind of makes me reluctant to order much more online.  Guess I won't be ordering from there again!

On a lighter note, my 7 year old, Maddie, made the most fantastic little image last night!  She was coloring in a Saturated Canary image with her watercolor pencils and asked me if she could use some damp q-tips to blend her colors better.  I said "Sure"!  This is what she brought me later-

Thank You from Saturated Canary.

So, what really impressed me, was the way she used the q-tips to give her image a polka-dotted background using all of the colors from her image!  I think it looks pretty darn neat!  Kind of makes you think....

She's so darn smart!

The only thing I have to show for myself, is a bookmark that I threw together the other night.  It kind became a bit more elaborate than I had planned on, but she's pretty cute!

 Creeper Crew Monday-from The Greeting Farm.

This is a corner bookmark that I found on Splitcoast Stampers.  I like this a little better that just your typical bookmark.  I used MME paper for most of it, Martha Stewart edge punch, and my new Spellbinders Presto Punch machine for the tag on the front and the heart on the back.  It was kind of nice to take a small break from cards, don't be surprised if you see more of these from me!!

Off I go to stock up a few crafting supplies!  Hope you all have a wonderful Friday!


  1. Please tell Maddie she did an amazing job with her card. Genius must run in the family. :)
    I love ur bookmark, it's gorgeous. It really is nice to do smaller projects now and again. Both terrific shares.
    As for that company that lost your order, that really sux and not how they should do business. I hope it was just an error and the package shows up.
    Big hugs for a terrific weekend!
